FROM REVREND FATHER JOSEPH AFOKE
I am.Rev.Fr.Joseph Afoke,68 years old, from the Republic of Zimbabwe,Formally the Catholic Archbishop of Killarney Diocess.I flew from my country to Barcelona-Spain because of our tyrant president(ROBERT MUGABEâS)destruction on the inhabitants of Killarney by his uniformed thugs between June and July 2005 together with his policy to wipe out the Zimbabweans white farmers and christains opposers which I, as one of his major opposers against his devilish policy to wipe out the white owned farmers became one of his targets to be eliminated by his Government.
Ever since,I have been helping the orphans in the orphanages,motherless homes and less privileged across few African countries. I have donated some money to orphanages in Sudan, South Africa,Cameroon, Mozambique and Liberia with the money I inherited from my late father who was into Diamond and crude oil business.
But, it is sad to let you know that I have been going through series of illness from auditory (hearing), multiple sclerosis and from cancer of the liver since I relocated to Spain coupled with much thinking about our destructive Government. I have some money amounting to Five million two hundred thousand united states dollars (US$5,200,000,00) only with a Financial institution here in -Spain.The fund is safe. This fund is left assets of my deceased father who was a white farmer hence he adviced me before his untimely death not to allow the destructive Government of ROBERT MUGABE to confiscate his Financial assets.
I will be going for major operations soonest. Except it pleases God, the chance of my survival is slim. God has specifically told me to help the less previledged people and to create equal right for all with my money. Please I solicit for your help to receive this money, invest it profitably and use it wisely for the less previledged people and to fight the corrupt regime of President Robert Mugabe.
If you can receive this money and carry out this soul surviving mission, kindly email immediately your following contact details through this my personal email address .(email@example.com)
Your complete names,Your address,Company name if any,Private telephone number,Private fax number,Private email address.
When I receive your above informations, I will furnish you with more details on how the funds would be claimed by you from the Financial Institution.Thereafter, I will give you instructions on how the funds will be invested and distributed among the orphanages and less previleged in return because a good name is better than precious ointment. The Lord has already told me that I would find a trustworthy person who can carry out this soul surviving mission. While I await your response, May God bless you and your family.
